The Network

We are backed by entrepreneurs who have shaped the world like Jeff Bezos, Reid Hoffman, Marissa Mayer, and Mark Zuckerberg. There’s no one playbook for what they have done; but, in our experience, getting the right people in your corner is a proven first step. Village’s network helps you land investors, talent, and customers.
